The Koenigsegg Agera R Engine
When it comes to specifications the one department where the car scores are the engine specifications. The car is known for offering amazingly high power output. This has been possible in spite of the fact that the engine is relatively small. According to experts, the small engine of Koenigsegg Agera R is capable of delivering such high power due to the unique shape of the vehicle’s combustion chamber.
Also, the company’s engineering department has also used a unique philosophy when putting together the intake system dynamics. These design features work by suppressing detonation (many refer to it as “knocking”) and triggering a much higher average combustion pressure than what was possible originally.
Another plus of Koenigsegg Agera R’s engine is its strong, forged, and ceramic coated pistons that weigh only 280 grams. The pistons are made even more special with the Koenigsegg logo that has been laser engraved on the top of their ceramic dome. These lightweight pistons have been mounted over the titanium rods, which are also products from the house of Koenigsegg.
We have mentioned just a few special features; the list is much longer and you’ll keep on discovering many such unique solutions as you’ll start driving the vehicle. The automaker has even designed the fuel pump system of the car to match the above mentioned unique attributes. In short, the engine of the Agera R has been designed to fit the car aptly.
Let us come to the basic specifications of the vehicle. Overall, the Agera R generates power of 960 hp when running on 95 octane regular fuel. On the other hand, when it runs on E85 biofuel, it is capable of producing the power of 1,140 hp. Here, it must be noted that the engine of the car successfully passes all global emission standards while maintaining a highly impressive fuel economy of 16 mpg.
The vehicle’s rear wheels receive the power through a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox. The engineering team of the company has also ensured that the car manages ultra quick shifts. This has been made possible through incorporation of a wet and dry clutch system. The gearbox of the car is more reliable, lighter, and much faster compared to other similar gearboxes found in modern day automobiles.
